haha!!! Just kidding... but those dudes are super inspirational to us!!!
So here's the story. 2 weeks ago, me and my partner Pat from Chicago took a photography trip to NYC. Our main goal was to get some GREAT photos, do mad photo shoots, build our portfolios and crack mad jokes!!! And we accomplished that. I contacted a bunch of my peeps down there and ended up with 9 photo shoots in 3 days! We'll be posting those in the coming days!!!
So this shoot here... I contacted the bride (who's a friend of mine) and asked if her and her husband wanted to do a couples shoot? I was thinking somewhere along the lines of an engagement style shoot. She tells me that she hated her wedding pics and still has her dress... So we decided to do a wedding shoot. Now, since I live in Toronto and Pat lives in Chicago, we wanted our photos to include some famous NYC landmarks. So we shot at DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Brooklyn Overpass).
Pat and I both shot. When I was shooting, Pat would assist with holding the softbox, and vice versa. Having a lighting assistant (who knows what they're doing) is KEY!!!!!! It makes a HUGE difference.
Here's a rundown of our gear we used for this shoot
-Canon 5D Mark 2
-Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS
-Canon 135mm f/2.0L
-Canon 24mm f/1.4L
-Canon 430EXII Speedlite
-Canon 580EX Speedlite
-Westcott 28x28 Apollo Softbox
Here are my photos from the shoot
